Introduction
About this Manual
This manual contains installation, configuration, and operating information for the
Extron TPS150 audio/video Twisted Pair (TP) switching and transmission system.
•
Chapter 1 identifies the transmitter’s and receiver’s features.
•
Chapter 2 details how to install the transmitter and receiver.
•
Chapter 3 describes how to operate the transmitter and receiver from their
front panels and use all of their features.
•
Chapter 4 provides information about programming and operating the
switcher under RS-232 control, such as from a PC or host controller. You can
control the switcher using Extron’s TPS150 serial command set or the ICS100
control program.
•
Appendix A lists the transmitter’s and receiver’s specifications and pertinent
part numbers.
About the Transmission System
The TPS150 consists of two components (figure 1-1):
•
The TPT150 AV switcher/TP transmitter (referred to in this manual as the
“switching transmitter” or the “transmitter”)
• The TPR150 TP video receiver (referred to in this manual as the “receiver”)
The transmitter and receiver form a switching and long distance transmission
system. The TPS150 system sends high resolution RGB video (such as VGA video),
low resolution video, and RS-232 control signals to a projector, plasma display, or
other display over a single Category (CAT) 5/5e/6 unshielded twisted pair (UTP),
shielded twisted pair (STP), or foil shielded twisted pair (FTP) cable. The system
includes cable compensation and skew control technology that allow you to use
these standard network cables.
The TPS150 will work with either shielded or unshielded cables. However, to
comply with FCC rules, shielded (STP or FTP) cables must be used.
About the TPT150 switching transmitter
The TPT150 transmitter accepts and switches between the following four video
inputs:
•
Input 1 and input 2 — High resolution video (such as VGA) on 15-pin HD
connectors. Input 1 includes a buffered local monitor loop-through
connector.
•
Input 3 and input 4 — For each input, one only of the following three video
formats:

Component video (Y, R-Y, B-Y) on three female RCA connectors

S-video on one 4-pin mini DIN connector

Composite video on one female RCA connector
Each input also accepts an unbalanced line level stereo audio signal on left and
right RCA connectors. The level of each audio input is individually adjustable to
ensure that there is no noticeable volume difference when switching among
sources.
The switching transmitter outputs the selected input audio as balanced or
unbalanced line level audio on a 5-pin 3.5 mm captive screw connector. The output
can also be muted.
1-2
TPS150 Switching and Transmission System • Introduction
The audio for the selected input is output locally. It is not sent to the receiver.
The TPT150 has an RS-232 port that accepts ICS100 program control from a
connected computer or serial command control from a computer or control system.
The transmitter can also store serial commands that are entered by the operator.
The transmitter sends the appropriate serial commands on the TP link to the
receiver whenever an input button or the projector power button is pressed.
An optional CTP150CM control panel can be connected to a contact closure port on
the TPT150. Using the CTP150CM, a remote operator can select inputs, power up
and down a projector connected to the receiver, and increase and decrease the
output volume.

TP Cable Advantages
Twisted pair cable is much smaller, lighter, more flexible, and less expensive than
coaxial cable. The TPT150 makes cable runs simpler and less cumbersome.
Termination of the cable with RJ-45 connectors is simple, quick, and economical.
Transmission distance
The maximum distance is determined by the output frequency and resolution. The
following table specifies the recommended maximum transmission distances using
CAT 5/5e/6 cable, terminated with the appropriate connectors.
It is possible to exceed the recommended distance; however, image quality may
be reduced.
We recommend the use of pre-terminated and tested cables. Cables terminated
on site should be tested before use.

Features
Four input A/V switcher — Accepts, switches, and transmits RGBHV, component
video (Y, R-Y, B-Y), S-video, composite video, and RS-232 serial content.
Accepts and switches unbalanced line level stereo audio.
Buffered monitor output on input 1 — Provides for local monitor output on a
15-pin HD female VGA connector, enabling a signal to be easily monitored
locally without the need for a separate distribution amplifier.
Universal projector control — The TPS150 provides universal projector control via
serial commands entered by the installing technician. Commands are
automatically sent when the input selection or Projector Power buttons are
pressed. The included ICS100 control software makes storing projector or
display control codes easy.
Skew compensation control — Individual red, green, and blue skew controls
adjust for the timing delays commonly encountered when CAT 5, CAT 5e, or
CAT 6 cable is used.
Sharpness control — Provides video equalization with individual low frequency
and high frequency adjustments. The low frequency control helps remove
image smearing. The high frequency control restores image sharpness and
detail.

Mounting the Transmitter and Receiver
The TPS150 comes with rubber feet for the transmitter and receiver, a set of
MTR102 rack ears for the transmitter, and a set of mounting brackets for the
receiver.
Rack mounting the transmitter
UL requirements
The following Underwriters Laboratories (UL) requirements pertain to the
installation of the transmitter into a rack (figure 2-1).
1.
Elevated operating ambient temperature — If installed in a closed or multiunit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack
environment may be greater than room ambient temperature. Therefore,
install the transmitter in an environment compatible with the maximum
ambient temperature (Tma = +122 °F, +50 °C) specified by Extron.
2.
Reduced air flow — Install the equipment in a rack so that the amount of air
flow required for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised.
3.
Mechanical loading — Mount the equipment in the rack so that a hazardous
condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.
4.
Circuit overloading — Connect the equipment to the supply circuit and
consider the effect that circuit overloading might have on overcurrent
protection and supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of equipment
nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this concern.
5.
Reliable earthing (grounding) — Maintain reliable grounding of rackmounted equipment. Pay particular attention to supply connections other
than direct connections to the branch circuit (e.g. use of power strips).
Mounting instructions
If desired, rack mount the transmitter as follows:
1.
Remove the rubber feet from the bottom of the transmitter.
2.
Attach the 992546-2 rack mounting ears to the transmitter with the six

Operation, cont’d
Operations
The following paragraphs detail the power-up process and then describe selecting
an input, issuing the projector power up and down commands, and adjusting the
input level and output volume.
Power
Apply power to the transmitter by connecting the power cord to an AC source and
toggling the AC power switch to the on ( ) position. Apply power to the receiver by
connecting the power cord to an AC source.
When AC power is applied, the transmitter and receiver perform a self-test that
flashes all of the transmitter’s front panel LEDs on and off once. An error-free
power up self-test sequence leaves the transmitter’s selected input LED, the Power
LEDs, and the receiver’s High Frequency LED on.
The selected input, the audio input level and output volume, and the blank and
mute on/off status are saved in non-volatile memory. When power is applied, the
latest configuration is retrieved.
Input selection
Press the Input Select button on the transmitter for the desired input. When you
select an input, the following occurs:
•
The transmitter sends the video portion of the selected input to the receiver
on the TP link. The receiver outputs the video on its appropriate Video
Output connectors.
•
If the operator has pre-programmed a serial command or data string for the
selected input (such as a projector’s own input selection or video format
command), the transmitter sends that serial string to the receiver on the TP
link. The receiver then outputs the serial string on its RS-232 port. See
chapter 4, “Serial Communications”, to specify the command to be sent.
•
The transmitter outputs the audio portion of the selected input locally, on its
own rear panel Output Audio port.
Projector power
The receiver does not receive a confirmation from the projector that it is on or
off. Rather, after the TPT150’s power is applied, the first serial string the
transmitter sends to the receiver (which passes it to the projector) is the string
that was programmed as the projector power on command. From that point,
every time you push the button, the transmitter alternates between sending the
power off command and the power on command. If the projector is powered on
or off locally, the transmitter sends the wrong command the next time the
Projector Power button is pressed.
The Projector Power control is typically used to remotely command the connected
projector to power itself up or down. Command strings to be transmitted must be
programmed in advance. The projector power timeout function (if enabled)
automatically powers off the projector after a user-defined interval. See chapter 4,
“Serial Communications”, to specify the commands to be sent and to set the timout
function.
3-4
TPS150 Switching and Transmission System • Operation
Press the Projector Power button on the transmitter to issue the projector on or off
command. When you push the button, the following occurs:
•
If no command has been transmitted since transmitter power was applied, or
if the power off command was the last command transmitted:

The transmitter sends the power on string to the receiver on the TP link.

The transmitter lights its Projector Power LED.

The transmitter starts its power off timout function (if enabled).

The receiver outputs the received serial string on its RS-232 port.
Some projectors use the same command for power on and power off. If the
same code is specified for on and off, the Projector Power LED blinks for each
button push.
•
If the power on command was the last command transmitted:

The transmitter sends the power off string to the receiver on the TP link.

The transmitter turns off its Projector Power LED.

The receiver outputs the received serial string on its RS-232 port.
The same sequence of events occurs when the projector power timeout function
(if enabled) expires.

Troubleshooting
This section gives recommendations on what to do if you have problems operating
the transmitter/receiver system, and it provides examples and descriptions for
some image problems you may encounter.
The following tips may help you in troubleshooting.
•
Some symptoms may resemble others, so you may want to look through all
of the examples before attempting to solve the problem.
•
Be prepared to backtrack in case the action taken does not solve the problem.
•
It may help to keep notes and sketches in case the troubleshooting process
gets lengthy. This will also give you something to discuss if you call for
technical support.
•
Try simplifying the system by eliminating components outside the system
that may have introduced the problem or made it more complicated.
•
For sync-related problems: Portable digital projectors are designed to operate
close to the immediate video source (the receiver). Sync problems may result
from using long cables or from improper termination. A sync adapter, such
as Extron’s ASTA (active sync termination adapter), may help solve these
problems.
•
For LCD and DLP projectors and plasma displays: In addition to the syncrelated information above, check the user’s manual that came with the
projector for troubleshooting tips, as well as for settings and adjustments.
Each manufacturer may have its own terms, so look for terms like “auto
setup,” “auto sync,” “pixel phase,” and “tracking.”
General checks
1.
Ensure that all devices are plugged in and powered on. The transmitter and
receiver both have Power LEDs to indicate that power is applied.
2.
Ensure that the input selected is active.
3.
Ensure that the proper signal format is supplied.
4.
Check the cabling and make corrections as necessary.
5.
Reset the switcher. See “Full system reset” on page 3-5.
6.
Call the Extron S3 Sales & Technical Support Hotline, if necessary.

The transmitter must be programmed with commands to be sent upon input
selection and with projector power on/off commands before those commands are
sent.
The transmitter can also be configured with several serial port variables to match
the controlling device and the device to be controlled.
You can program and operate the transmitter either by using the ICS100 Windowsbased control program or by sending individual ASCII commands. Both
programming methods require that a null modem serial port cable be connected
between a computer and the transmitter’s RS-232 port.
ICS100 Windows-Based Control Program
The ICS100 Control Program, a graphical control software for Windows, provides a
way to program the transmitter.

The communications protocols of the receiver should match the protocols of the
device to be controlled.
Command and response structure
Valid commands consist of a leading delimiter, one or more characters in a
command code, and an ending delimiter. The transmitter ’s response to an RS-232
command also consists of a leading delimiter, a command code, and an ending
delimiter.
The transmitter’s leading delimiter code is always a left bracket ( [ ). The ending
delimiter code is always a right bracket ( ] ).
Example: [CPp@] — where “[“ is the leading delimiter, “CPp@” is the command
(reset the transmitter’s serial port to default values), and “]” is the ending delimiter.
Addressing the transmitter
The transmitter must be addressed before it will accept and respond to commands.
The address packet ([CC##], where ## is the 2-digit address) routes setup
information to a particular unit on a network and enables command responses.
Once the transmitter is addressed, it can accept an unlimited number of commands.
If a different unit is addressed, the TPT150 ignores subsequent commands until it is
addressed again.
The factory-installed default address is 97, but this number can be changed. The
transmitter can also take commands after receiving a broadcast address of 00, but it
does not send responses. Broadcast is for multiple units in a network configuration
in half duplex mode.
By definition, the display device connected to the receiver’s RS-232 port is assigned
an address that is one larger than the transmitter’s (for example, 98 to the
transmitter’s default 97). If you address the display, the transmitter passes the
commands received directly through to the receiver’s RS-232 port, allowing you to
control the display. The transmitter also passes responses on the receiver’s RS-232
port back to its own serial port.
TPS150 Switching and Transmission System • Serial Communications
4-11
Serial Communications, cont’d
When the system is in Pass-Through mode [CC98], commands and responses are
sent between the transmitter and receiver. If the system is not in Pass-Through
mode, all of the receiver responses to the transmitter’s button commands are
buffered until you return the system to mode, at which time the buffered
responses are sent back to the controlling device. In this way, the controller can
track the activity that has occurred.
After you are finished programming the transmitter, always terminate the session
by sending an address packet to another unit with a different address. This
prevents the transmitter from responding to commands meant for another unit.
Transmitter responses
When a command is valid, the transmitter performs the command and sends the
following response:
[R0•{address}•{echo of the command sent}•]
When a command is invalid, either because the command is not recognized or it
contains invalid parameters, the transmitter sends the following response:
[R1•{address}•{echo of the command sent}•]
Using the command/response table
The command/response table begins on page 4-14. The command set is case
sensitive and commands must be entered as shown. The table below shows the
hexadecimal equivalent of each ASCII command.

Transmitter address + 1 is defined as the device connected to the receiver’s RS-232 port.
The very first command that you send to the transmitter must be the connect, [CC X1 ], command, where
X1 is the transmitter’s address. The transmitter will not accept other commands or respond until it has
been addressed.
The very last command that you send to the transmitter should be the connect, [CC X1 ], command, where
X1 is a different address. This prevents the transmitter from accepting and responding to commands
meant for other devices.
